About the U.S. Collegiate Championships

Some skaters are lucky enough to go to a college with a collegiate figure skating club. And, some skaters choose to go to colleges without figure skating clubs. Whether you are the lone skater at your school, or a member of a varsity figure skating team, you can compete at the U.S. Collegiate Championships!

The longest running of all the collegiate programs, this competition started in 1985. Each summer, this competition welcomes full-time college students to participate from all over the country. Athletes ranging from intermediate through senior athletes are eligible to compete.

The competitors find a friendly atmosphere, and make lots of new friends who share their love for figure skating. In addition, skaters get a chance to learn about U.S. Figure Skating activities, volunteer opportunities in figure skating, coaching, forming collegiate clubs on their campuses, and even try their hand at trial judging!
